Second Factor Authentication (2FA)

FileZilla Pro used in combination with FileZilla Pro Enterprise Server enables Second Factor Authentication (2FA). If the server administrator has instructed the server to request a 2FA code, the user needs to enter the secret key provided by the server administrator in their preferred TOTP-capable authenticator app, such as Google Authenticator.

When connecting to the server, FileZilla Pro prompts the user to enter the code generated by the
authenticator app.

Note: When connecting to an SFTP server, users must enter both the one-time password generated by Google
Authenticator and the user’s password in the password field, separated by a semicolon. In the example below 215798 is the one-time password and 2WaPEx2D$dLvpc is the user’s password:


FileZilla Pro Enterprise Server supports 2FA and can be configured to request the authentication code, to learn more ask your server administrator.
